Green Lantern: First Flight (2009)
2020 Sep 1636m 56s
In brightest day, in blackest night, this hour-long film was just alright. Mk, Trace thought it was alright, but Synneve hated it. This was DC's fifth direct-to-video animated film, and while its plot and characters fell pretty flat, we still had a hilarious time going through all of our extremely deep thoughts.Check in next week as we continue season one of Netflix's Luke Cage (episodes 5-8) and then finish off the rest of the season (episodes 9-13) the following week.
